Victim or Perpetuator?

Reblogged from Debbie's Spurts:

Just a re-post of something that bears repeating when all the author drama claiming book was bullied crops up again.

"...Online bullying is a thing.   Trolling is a thing.


Bad reviews are also a thing. Hating someone’s book is not bullying. Sharing your opinion, suggesting others stay away from a book or an author, is not bullying. It might cost you some sales, and that sucks, but it’s not bullying, nor is it an organized campaign to destroy someone’s career..."
